Re: Article 50
Incredibly, incredibly dangerous.
If the will of the people is not followed then there will pretty much definitely be bad consequences. 1.2 million more people voted leave then voted remain - that's a huge number of people.
We discussed it to death, we had debates, newspapers were full of little else. Then we the people decided - and we voted to leave.
Leave was a democratic decision - and democracy is precious. The sight of a Prime Minister peacefully leaving No 10 after losing an election is something to be incredibly proud of. The sight of ministers standing in draughty church halls hoping that we the people have voted for them is special. Not enough votes, then don't get in your ministerial car, you're not wanted anymore, go home. We want someone new and fresh doing the job instead.
What you are proposing is to block the democratic process. What? Would you like the army to step in to stop Brexit? Or a coup d'etat by Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg (who were the only really pro remain politicians).
And this is something you may have missed about the EU - it is not just a project to create a Federal superstate of Europe - it is to be an unelected, unaccountable dictatorship of cronies and eurocrats. Just look up the quotes from JC Juncker - and that is just the public quotes!
One day the scale of the near miss - and how we've just avoided disaster by voting leave will become clear. Either the EU will seriously reform, backtrack on it's empire building, get more democratic etc. Or it will continue on it's current empire building path, and implode due to the inherent waste and inefficiency which is directly caused by its lack of democratic values.
You may think that you're 'right' and that millions of others were 'wrong'. I happen to think that I'm 'right' and you are 'wrong'. So we have a disagreement. So, in a democracy we debate it, then we vote, then we follow the will of the people.
And before you think of all the Leave voters as inherently stupid or naive please think about it. Is everyone who disagrees with you stupid by definition? Hmmm.
Personally I have spoken to Remain people and they have no clue about the EU referendums of 2005, about which countries voted etc. How we were told we didn't need a vote by president Blaire. And how the referendum votes in France and Holland against the vast EU expansion of sovereignty were completely ignored by the EU and enacted anyway as the Lisbon treaty. How can they say others are stupid when they don't this basic bit of EU history?
